Jean-Claude de Crousaz, Ceramics at the Musée Ariana


 

Musée Ariana – Geneva

Jean-Claude de Crousaz

through February 11, 2008

Jean-Claude de Crousaz (born in 1931) has been an essential figure in the Geneva ceramic scene for some fifty years, during which time he has created his own distinctive style : spirited, joyously figurative, and unafraid of being “decorative ”. Whether painted or in the round, his animal subjects are particularly emblematic of his art. De Crousaz is not only one of the pioneers of Swiss contemporary ceramics, he is also one of the most popular creators in his field (and in the noblest sense of the term).
